As we near the end of the semester, the only thing that crosses our minds is finals week- the week every college student dreads. It’s our “sink or swim” moment. Lewis Caroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, did a justice with his precise movie quotes. Why don’t we take a trip to Wonderland and let him reiterate for us?
“I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.”
True story. You tell yourself you’re going to study numerous times. You’re going to take small breaks in between. You’ll make a schedule of your finals to know the amount of study time you have in between each one. You try to organize your life into a whole week as best you can. Well, in a perfect world, this would work out as expected. But this is reality and life isn’t that simple. You actually cram at the last minute while taking hour long Netflix binges and feeling guilty the entire time.
“It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.”
As finals approach, everything becomes a little vague. Those long chapters, the notes you took last week, even the review the teacher gives out. Well, meet test anxiety at it’s finest. Nothing makes sense now because this is the time when it all matters. This is the judgement day of every semester. This is your “make it or break it” moment.
